See The African Nurse Who Was Sacked In U.K Because She Offered To Pray With Her Patients

A nurse with 15 years'
experience has been sacked
in the UK after discussing
Christianity and offering to
pray with patients before
operations.

Sister Sarah Kuteh was
dismissed for breaching
guidelines, even though her
job involved asking people
preparing for surgery about
their religion. The mother-of-three, who is
now suing the hospital for
unfair dismissal, said she was
offering solace to patients she
believed were happy to chat
about their beliefs, and described her sacking as
'disproportionate and
punitive'.

Mrs Kuteh broke down in tears
as she recalled being
suspended and escorted from
Darent Valley hospital in
Dartford, Kent. DailyMail
reports she said: 'It was embarrassing for me –
and painful after all I had
done in my years as a nurse.

I was told I couldn't even speak
to my colleagues. All I had
done was to nurse from my heart. How could it be harmful
to tell someone about Jesus?'
But bosses at Dartford and
Gravesham NHS Trust said her
'unwanted discussions' had
upset patients and she had
also failed to heed warnings
that she was being unprofessional. One patient had complained
that Sister Kuteh had given
her a Bible she did not want
and had said she would pray
for her. Another allegedly said
she had felt uncomfortable that Mrs Kuteh was
'preaching' at her. In June, Mrs Kuteh was
'shocked' to be told three
further complaints had been
made, after which she was
told to stop assessing patients
and was suspended a few days later. She was sacked in August
after an investigation, and her
appeal was rejected
